  1. Genes were identified in a SSH screen, selectively amplifying genes expressed in testes relative to the rest of the male’s body. cDNA was extracted from dissected male testes, the male body minus testes, 4th instar larvae, dissected female ovaries, and female bodies minus ovaries, and RT-PCR was then used to assess whether the genes were 1) testis-specific (i.e. in testes, but not other adult tissues); 2) expressed in larvae; and 3) ovary specific (i.e. in ovaries, but not other female tissues). Genes are ordered in ascending VectorBase (www.vectorbase.org) accession numbers.
